Maninalto Vin de France 2020
Tours, Loire Valley
The Grolleau grape is capturing the attention of people all over. Dominated by red, tart cherry fruits, the nose abounds with other wild, forest fruits as the wine opens up in the glass. A vibrant and fresh wine on the pallet with medium body and a lovely acidity, without aggressive tannins, through the finish. A natural wine from a nomadic wine product – only a few hundred bottles produced.

Beginning in Sicily more than five years ago, this new release from the 2020 vintage found her harvesting Grolleau from her friend Adrien Baloche's biodynamic vineyards. Natural wine techniques are at the core of Joanna's philosophy. She strives to express what the earth has offers in an honest and thoughtful way.

Each wine from Joanna, under the name Maninalto, is completely different. One of the aspects of the natural wine movement is to be creative and think outside of traditional limitations. One way of doing this is to combine organically grown grapes from opposite ends of France in a manner that has never been done before. A skin-contact white wine that expresses a harmonious blend with white flowers, citrus, and hints of honeycomb.
